Barnes Won't Appear With Toxic Obama Next Month

Two days ago, an honest question was posed to Roy Barnes on this site.

Will he appear with President Obama who, polls say, is toxic to Democrats in this state at an Atlanta fundraiser next month?

AJC Political Insider Jim Galloway has the answer to that honest question. Roy's running all the way down to south Georgia and as a result won't be seen with the President in Atlanta [Galloway, Jim (2010-7-24). Roy Barnes says he’ll be in south Georgia when President Barack Obama comes to town. Political Insider. Retrieved on 2010-7-24.].

That's good news for Democrats, like myself, who hope Republicans aren't able to hang the albatross that is Barack Obama around the collective necks of Georgia's Democratic ticket this year.
